How long was the bike locked in this location?:
The bike was locked in front of the Merchandise Mart near the corner of Wells and Kenzie. The rear wheel was locked to the frame with a U-lock, and the front wheel was locked to the frame and the bike rack with a heavy-duty chain lock. This is a very busy area, so I am not sure how it was taken due to the heavy duty lock.
